  1. OMG may he Rest In Peace , I used to be into True Blood HEAVY during its first few seasons and when I tell you his character was my favorite. My favorite scene of his is from season one when he goes off on the rednecks in the restaurant. 😔😔 gone way too soon

  2. Daaamn, I LOVED that show, even when it was carrying on too long and gettin a lil ridic toward the end and loooooved his character….very sad news, RIP bruh!

  3. I will miss him and I am saddened he never really got the public never got the chance to give him the roses he deserves. A true talent gone before he got his true big break.
